UNI DAY SPECIAL
The Starry Uni's Flight
Flying through the moonlit sky
A starry Uni passes by.
Her star-strewn coat of inky blue
Blends with the celestial view,
One golden horn aloft to guide
Her mysterious midnight glide.
Feathered wings trace constellations
Who watch her flight in admiration.
None can know this enigma well,
Caught under her mesmerising spell.
Her face betrays her grand delight
As she dances through the starry night.
Bronze mane and tail tossed by the air,
A crowning glory of burnished hair.
The stars upon her coat shine through
In a luminescent hue.
The moon and stars engage her play,
As she swirls through their grand display.
Perhaps there is no greater sight
Than a starry Uni flying at night.
Reflection flawless, she did note,
As light did gleam on silken coat.
For sure no other mane could flow,
With tendrils tumbling, gleam and glow.
A creature vain, one must confide,
Her beauty matched, conceit and pride.
Eternal hours would she spend,
Gazing, preening, days on end!
To check that mane was just in place,
A vapid smile on her face.
A Uni is a beauty, true,
But vanity's a bad curse, too.
It's said no other was as grand,
Few with equal poise would stand.
Those hours gazing served her well,
A beauty, famous, all would tell.
And yet so vapid, all did find,
With little but herself in mind.
Balance is the message here,
For vanity is cruel, I fear.
Better to have more in mind,
Than what a mirror's sheen can find.
A Uni is a lovely thing,
Beware the curse conceit may bring!
The Nightsteed's Ride
Cresting golden rolling hills
Behold a Uni, tall and proud,
Glossy fur and silver mane,
But a secret does the sunlight shroud.
Strength ripples in his supple limbs
And wades into sunset's light.
Blue coat awash in red as stars
Herald the coming night.
And now leaps forth his prison
In a frightful cataclysm.
A dream is all that remains of much;
That periwinkle coat so fine
Turns dirty teal and molts away
To reveal what underlies.
Stark bone and swathes of bandages
Become his grisly guise.
Eyes blaze red and hooves burst to flames,
Sand melts to glass as he flies.
But fearful as his form may be,
Looks and intents lie apart.
His canter's melancholy, but ever calm
Beating to a placid heart.
His curse is one of centuries,
Hope of escape is wan,
Trapped in a broken, twisted form,
But for now, he gallops on.
Invaders swarm over the ground;
Their banners black the sky.
The Uni stallion stands with eyes of steel,
His heartbeat a war cry.
Sinew, muscle, slender legs,
And armour gleaming bright.
A paragon of chivalry,
Devotion to what's right.
His soul forged in the flame of war,
His duty in his bones,
More precious than all gold and gems,
More dear than wealth and thrones.
A warrior in every breath.
His home, where war collides.
When all else fails, is stripped away,
His knighthood yet abides.
The two sides clash, and chaos reigns.
The storm of battle breaks,
And he, a force of nature too,
Won't give an inch, but takes.
When victory is his to claim,
And enemies surrender,
He yet stands tall, unbreakable,
His kingdom's best defender.
Battered, wounded, snowy flanks
Smudged with stains of dirt --
His body may be wounded,
But his spirit is unhurt.
Zombification of a Uni
Like all tragic tales,
Mine started out simply good,
In an ordinary house,
In an ordinary town,
Where the pets knew one another well.
I was beauty incarnate,
I willingly admit,
Vanity, my strongest trait,
Save your judgment for the end,
Mane of flowing white,
Roses braided in my tail,
My coat so sleek and glossy,
It reflected back your tears.
Through the town I used to go,
Day by day, to show off my beauty,
And make those less fortunate weep,
Wishing for what I had.
It was one day that I noticed the stain,
As I groomed and preened,
Like moss on my flank,
And how my hooves were dulled,
The faintest sign of cracks.
It came quickly then,
Spreading like the clouds
Across the shining sun.
Where once bright day,
Now dusk descended,
Beauty crumbled to stone,
Like the mountains from hence
All Unis came.
When and where, why,
Questions left unanswered,
Did I deserve this? I do not know;
Perhaps fate, or mere chance,
That I'm a Zombie now.
The breeze is a whisper
even as the sky shimmers
and the sun flames
and the wind blows silver
And I watch as you command
the currents of the sky
as you lift up high
on updrafts aloft
And your wind-whipped mane
tangles with your flowing tail
my eyes to the sun
your wings to the skies
And your feathers are light
in dizzying flight
blow a sweet kiss upon
a fading horizon
And may you fly far and wide
may your wings carry you high
in rain or in shine
this winged Uni of mine
Uni to Christmas Uni
Paint brush bristles, coloured red and green,
Touching her scarlet red coat.
What she thought would be messy and rough...
Turned out different.
Soft, even strokes were what she could feel.
Sparkles fell upon her,
Floating glitters surround her.
A white glimmer glowed on her fur.
Her crimson red coat disappearing,
Along with her white mane, with a tint of red.
Her hooves, slowly, being polished in gold.
Her face, beaming.
Soon, her mane held streaks of red and green,
And her coat, white as snow.
Her horn still glimmered,
And her eyes, glazed with joy.
The sparkles drifted away,
And the change... it was over.
From normal to brilliant,
She dazzled in Christmas colour.
Steed of Night
Sand whips around in a storm,
Casting a dun pall in the desert,
Parting before the decaying linen,
That drags behind in greyish Wadjets,
Unharmed by furious hooves,
That sing in their blazing flame.
Bony wings flutter defiantly,
Such that spirits whisper with intrigue,
At the being that strives to stand fast,
Against the torrent of their making,
Leaving the galloping figure unharmed,
Out of sheer respect.
Whither will the Steed of Night go?
Shaking a mane of midnight blue,
That remains as uncertain as the storm,
That whips and howls like a Werhond,
Clasping feebly at the retreating soul,
Over which they have no power.
Red robes flutter in the freezing wind
As the Uni Knights assess the enemy in their mind.
A sniff of air, a glance at the other side
Only serves to enlarge their pride.
For a few short moments, all is still,
But all the Knights feel the thrill.
In the last few seconds they pause and think
Like diving birds right on the cliff's brink.
Then they charge forward, their horns down,
As their faces melt into an hateful frown.
Ever the brave ones and yet unaware
Of the dusty clouds rising into the air.
